First time build, is this a good/possible system?

First time build of a new rig for gaming, but before I dropped money on this system was hopping to get a better idea of what i was doing and make sure it all went together well or if there were better options out there.

More about time build good system
  1. its a great system i know because i have somthing similer the question is whats the asking price and secondly you could build it for cheaper more than likely
  2. I will try and fine something comparable for cheaper :)
  3. HI IMCLASSIFIED. great build. the one thing i would chabge is the psu, get a antec, corsair or seasonic thats 80+ and at least 550w. others may come in for a cheaper build...cheers:)
  4. Wow, thanks, that was extremely fast, You have any idea of anything that might be missing? along with, right now, buying everything from New egg its around $1100 which is well under my original budget, but knowing that i can get it cheaper and I am happy with this setup it would be great to be sub $1000. I started with just getting the parts right before seeing if i could get them cheaper.

    Dude, thanks, your awesome :wahoo:
  6. If this is below your original budget, I highly suggest a SSD as well. You will NEVER go back to just a HDD system.

    Oh, I Know, they are amazing, I have one in my laptop and it is amazingly fast, that was just something that I was going to tack on as a luxury item at the end if I had the room

    Haha I had to give up the extra 8gb of ram (but it's not really necessary)

    The parts are similar quality though esp the PSU which is better, kept the case but there are multiple cheaper options out there

    Thats great, and I figured as much about the RAM. Thanks a lot, this is extremly helpful. Do you have any recommendations for a better case? I would love to have a smaller one seeing as space is slightly limited
  10. really Ultimately it totally depends on what you plan to use it for and if you are planning on OC (if for games) or mainly a media machine etc how reliable you want it or just going for a power but cheap build etc

    the spec's you see below are for my gaming pc these are the most reliable parts availible (but not good on the pocket) and this machine it totally geared for overclocking , however my media machine connected to my TV are completly diffrent for obvious reasons

    Ok, well In reality, im going just for durable gaming rig and maybe the possibilty of overclocking, but definitly not right off that bat, ill probably save that for if i want to build again after this.

    not a problem and great build (if i didnt mention it earlier) the main issue im having with it is the main board ,air cooler (if planning at all to OC and the psu (should idealy be a corsair) ,i dosnt mind gigabyte but like i always try to suggest if you can afford alittle extra (or alot) asus is the only way to go :)

    oh and one more thing wait till you play crysis 3 on the 8 core its totally killer ;)
